Where to start? Well, it's daft! 50s style boys adventure stuff like doc smith or the heinleins juveniles. But with the added bite of accurate cutting edge physics. The hero is just simply too all American square jawed patriotic beer drinking athlete to appeal to many out side the fishbowl of the good ol' U S of A.
The plot is based on a possible side effect of wormhole research gone wrong and it ambles on into a military dash for supremacy against aliens with better tech. The right wing politically driven narrative doesn't bother me as I'm apolitical and a practising member of the church of FSM, but I can see how it rubs some of the other reviewers up the wrong way, lol.
Overall another good, not great, addition to Ringo's growing list of entertaining fare. Favourite part has to be the charge of the redneck brigade!

okay, what we have hear is a little gem that has everything from high-energy physics to high-velocity penetrator rounds.

Its easy to lump this book with a description like 'rednecks with wormholes' but seriously, i've read books with far worse premises (and execution) from supposedly more 'serious' writers.

If you like your science fiction murky, with endless introspection and the occasional smattering of psuedo-technical terms like 'hyperdrive' or 'wormhole' to place it in a 'science-fiction' setting then this book, frankly, isnt for you.

What it is, is a book with clearly defined enemy, a hero of the 'old school' with a square jaw and a multitude of skills and the application of serious amounts of firepower.

Yes, it has massive amounts of high-energy physics described inside it. Is that so wrong? I've read the book twice and i'm still fuzzy on the differences between a gluon, a muon and a quark but you know what, i'm fine with that. I still, quite easily, managed to get the gist of what Ringo was describing because there are characters in the book that dont understand the physics either and the exposition between them breaks the physics explanations up into chunks that the reader CAN understand...and by the end of it, i DID manage to learn some new physics.

so in conclusion...if you're a reader of Ringo before, there's no new surprises here except for a fascinating premise of 'wormholes', their generation, maintenance and unintended consequences.

If your new to Ringo's works, sit back and enjoy it for what it is, a tale of derring do against an implacable foe and, yes, rednecks with explosives.

John Ringo is one of the most interesting authors I have found in a long time. I came across his work through David Weber and a series of books they wrote together, the Prince Roger Saga.

I decided to take a chance and started reading some of his own novels and have been very pleasently surprised, so much so that I now own every book he has written and am constantly keeping an eye out for his new releases.

Into the Looking Glass is his first book in a new series, the sequel to be released some time this year. Basic premise of the book is that unexplained gateways have started opening across the world linked to various other planets and races. Some friendly and some not so much. The story centres around an expert called in by the US government.

Now the thing that I enjoy about Ringo's books is that they are pure escapism and do not care about political correctness. Always fast moving and at times very humorous, I can reccommend this book to any fans of sci-fi or military fiction.
